Artist - Stanley Bird

Available in the Gallery

Stanley Bird is a Scottish artist living and working in Edinburgh. After
pursuing a successful career in the law, Stanley turned to painting full
time in 2010 and has taken his life in a new artistic direction. He works
with a bold palette to create exciting images of the natural world that
seize the imagination and that people can relate to.

Although he could be described as “self-taught”, for several years Stanley
attended evening classes and intensive weekend courses at the Glasgow School
of Art to improve his technique, to widen his experience of making art and
to stimulate the creative processes.

Stanley works mainly in acrylics and mixed media on board and on canvas
featuring bold colourful backgrounds. His work ranges from larger scale
representational paintings and portraits of animals – bulls, cows, sheep,
pigs, deer, horses – both in monochrome and colour – to smaller more
intimate, mixed media paintings of these and other animals. Recently his
work has included a series of “Dug-Shots” – characterful portraits of “Man’s
Best Friend”. He is also fond of painting all sort of wildlife from the hot
plains of Africa, to the dark forests of Scotland and the domestic back
garden.

He has exhibited and sold work at the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine
Arts (RGI), Paisley Art Institute (PAI) and the Royal Scottish Society of
Painters in Watercolour (RSW). Stanley also exhibits and sells his paintings
through a number of galleries across Scotland and the north of England. His
paintings are in private collections in Europe, Asia, America, South Africa
and Australia.”
